While you never have to follow a trend and should have a hairstyle that suits you, your hair and face type and your lifestyle, trends do come and go with hair and it is always nice to embrace a modern look. Here are a few hair trends that are emerging for this summer.
Summer Hair Trends
Beachy Waves: Effortless and tousled waves are always a go-to for summer. Achieve this look by using a curling iron or sea salt spray to create natural-looking waves that mimic the texture of beach hair.
Braids: Braided hairstyles are versatile and can be adapted to suit any occasion. From classic French braids to boho-inspired fishtail braids or trendy boxer braids, braided hairstyles are perfect for keeping your hair off your face and neck in the summer heat.
Bob and Lob Cuts: Shorter haircuts like bobs and lobs (long bobs) are popular choices for summer. They are low-maintenance, stylish, and help keep you cool. You can add texture and movement with layers or opt for a blunt cut for a sleek and chic look.
Hair Accessories: Accessorizing your hair is a fun way to elevate your summer style. From headbands and hair scarves to embellished clips and barrettes, there are plenty of options to add a touch of flair to your hairstyles.
Natural Textures: Embrace your natural hair texture and let it shine during the summer months. Whether you have curly, wavy, or straight hair, work with your natural texture and enhance it with the right products to achieve a carefree and effortless look.
Bold Colours: Summer is a great time to experiment with vibrant hair colours. From pastel hues like lavender or peach to bold and bright shades like blue or pink, a pop of colour can add a playful and fun element to your summer style.
Low Ponytails and Buns: Sleek and low-maintenance hairstyles like low ponytails and buns are perfect for hot summer days. They keep your hair off your face and neck while maintaining a polished and put-together look.
Wet Look: The wet hair look is a trendy style for summer. Achieve this sleek and glossy look by applying a gel or styling product to damp hair and combing it back. This style is great for both short and long hair.
Sun-Kissed Highlights: Add some dimension to your hair by incorporating sun-kissed highlights. Whether you prefer balayage, baby lights, or traditional foil highlights, lighter strands can give your hair a natural and sun-kissed appearance.
Pixie Cut: For those who want to go super short, a pixie cut is a chic and bold option for summer. It’s low-maintenance, stylish, and keeps you cool during the hotter months.
